The computer explosion of the 1980s and 1990s has proliferated business, management, and administration careers. Literally millions of new job opportunities are available that were never possible before. Not only have new careers been created, but also every phase of the existing business, management, and administration cluster has been adapted or upgraded. A major thrust is on information and analysis processing. Now with such state-of-the-art technology as fax machines, modems, E-mail, voice mail, and call waiting, information can be processed across the office or across the country in seconds. Businesses can track railroad cars or mail deliveries, can maintain more accurate inventories, and can use the data analysis to market their products and ideas. The business, management, and administration programs provide students with the latest technology and opportunities to develop background knowledge. The knowledge and the skills learned in the indicated courses will enable students to pursue a career in this cluster.
